Dave Edwards had his gymnastics skills marked as the Wolverhampton Wanderers player joined team-mate Prince Oniangue in launching the club's Premier League Primary Stars programme.
The pair visited St Luke's Primary School, the place where Wolves were born, and joined a Year 5 classroom session on respect as well as a Year 1 PE lesson.
"Wolverhampton is a one-club city and as role models we should come out to the schools and different areas and help in any way we can," Edwards told wolves.co.uk. "It's great for kids to see players coming to see them."
Premier League Primary Stars will enable the Wolves Community Trust to expand their "School Sport - The Wolves Way" project, which has engaged more than 8,000 children and worked with 71 schools over the last three years.
"I'd heard about the benefits of Wolves Community Trust coming in and working with our staff and children," said St Luke's headteacher Alison Grennan.
"It's not just all about football but about the themes that you can take from sport, respect, equality as well as learning about obesity and healthy living."
Premier League Primary Stars is being rolled out across the country to provide free curriculum-linked Key Stage 1 and 2 classroom resources for PE, but also Maths, English and Enterprise.
